Have you been injured by an uninsured driver? You could be eligible to make an uninsured driver compensation claim.
An uninsured driver is someone driving a vehicle without having obtained the required insurance cover. The law orders all drivers to have this cover so that in case of an accident, any injured party is looked after and paid injury compensation. If you have been injured and the driver is uninsured, Accident Advice Helpline will still be able to help you receive the sum that is due to you. The Motor Insurer’s Bureau exists to cover the costs of uninsured driver compensation claims against innocent parties like you.
Uninsured driver claims
Please take a look at our page specifically for road traffic accidents. Depending on your injuries, you may also want to have a read of our page dedicated to whiplash injuries.
First of all you should try and get the details of the other people involved in the accident, as well as the details of any witnesses. Also, it would be sensible to take photos of any damage and also of the road where the accident happened. This will help you when making your injury compensation claim.
In the case of an uninsured driver, you should also report the matter to the police.
As soon as possible, it is imperative that you see a doctor. Even if it seems as though nothing is wrong, this may not be the case, particularly if you’ve banged your head.
